Art in the Library
As public spaces, libraries can become much more than a places to read a book, or use a computer, they can become thriving community centers - places for lectures, meetings, poetry readings, or art exhibits. A few years ago The Clement C. Maxwell Library started making proactive efforts to have a series of art exhibits year round. Right now we have artwork from Professor John Hooker's study tour to Tanzania. Today I found out that The Howard County (Maryland) Public Library will be displaying sculpture by artist, and renaissance man, John Hayes (my father) through October 30. Read more about my father in the Laurel Gazette.
